Dr. Edward Bach was a medical consultant, bacteriologist and homeopath who formulated the Bach flower remedies in the 1930s. All the remedies are prepared from wild flowers, shrubs and trees and preserved in graped alcohol. Bach flower remedies deal with the state of mind and the principle that restoring harmony to the mind and body encourages healing. There are thirty-eight remedies covering a particular aspect of negative state of mind. The thirty-ninth remedy, Rescue Remedy is a composite of five of the other remedies. The remedies can be used for many different instances and can be purchased separately or as a set. They can be purchased at most reputable health food stores.
All the remedies are absolutely safe and can be given in conjunction with conventional and other natural therapies. They are not addictive and there are no dependence issues.
